Chicken Enchilada Casserole

December 18, 2008

It is impossible for me to 10 minutes without thinking about food. Seriously. I love food.

Our first home cooked meals in the new house are behind us. Chris made spaghetti with ground turkey and turkey keilbasa on Tuesday night. On Wednesday night, I make a chicken enchilada casserole. See, I was craving chicken enchiladas, but didn’t want to take the time to roll them, or cook the chicken for that matter. So I cheated.

I used this recipe from RecipeZaar, and instead of using 3-4 chicken breasts, I bought a rotisserie chicken from the store. I picked all the meat off of the chicken, shredded it and it worked out just fine. I also used two cans Cream of Chicken instead of a Cream of Mushroom. I used two smaller casserole dishes and froze one for later use. We both really loved it and will definitely be making it again!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe #42543
This recipe appears by special request. Creamy chicken and
green chilies I use the regular sized tortillas.. not the large
ones.I overlap the tortillas to make the layer. I make it up in an
oblong serving dish, I think it is about a 9 1/2 inch by 11 inch
pan. But any size you would put 1 full cake mix into will work
well . I love this recipe.
